Whitsun Monday & the weather's grim

I'm bored. I suppose I could get off my backside and do the dishes, but...Anyone up for another round of Guess Where These Lyrics Are From? I'll start us off on:

01. Now try and picture this, as I gave you a kiss
The apple in your mouth slipped in mine
-- The Stone Roses, How Do You Sleep?, guessed by onecheekyhobbit

02. I believe in love. I’ll believe in anything
That’s gonna get me what I want and get me off my knees
 

03. Politician Grannie with your high ideals
Have you no idea how the majority feels?
So without love and a promised land
We're fools to the rules of a goverment plan
-- Tears For Fears, Sowing The Seeds Of Love, guessed by anonypooh

04. It doesn't hurt me.
Do you want to feel how it feels?
Do you want to know that it doesn't hurt me?
Do you want to hear about the deal that I'm making?
--Kate Bush, Running Up That Hill, guessed by bogwitch

05. I'm a path of cinders
burning under your feet
you're the one who walks me
I'm your one way street
-- Björk, Bachelorette, guessed by dalmeny

06. Vor uns liegt ein weites Tal
Die Sonne scheint mit Glitzerstrahl
Die Fahrbahn ist ein graues Band
Weisse Streifen, grüner Rand
-- Kraftwerk, Autobahn, guessed by db2305

07. Oh help me please mama, I'm sick'ning
It's today that's the day of the plunge
Oh the gal I'm to marry
Is a bow-legged sow
I've been soakin' up drink like a sponge


08. I'm shying from the light
I always loved the night
And now you offer me eternal darkness
-- Depeche Mode, One Caress, guessed by freakspawn

09. I been running Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, running
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday,
Saturday, Sunday
-- The Clash/Common Rotation, Police On My Back, guessed by anonypooh

10. You know you laughed.
I HEARD you laugh, you laughed
And laughed and laughed
And then you left
-- Napoleon XIV/Dr. Demento, They're Coming To Take Me Away, guessed by pepperlandgirl

11. There's a party in my mind...And it never stops
There's a party up there all the time...They'll party till they drop
Other people can go home...other people, they can split
I'll be here all the time...I can never quit


12. And I don't trust you
'Cause every time you're here
Your intentions are unclear
I spend every hour waiting for a phone call
That I know will never come
I used to think you were the one
Now I'm sick of thinking anything at all
-- Maroon 5, Through With You, guessed by onecheekyhobbit

13. I'm not expecting to grow flowers in the desert
But I can live and breathe and see the sun in wintertime
-- Big Country, In A Big Country, guessed by bogwitch

14. The priests and the friars
Behold me in dread
Because I still love you
My love and you're dead


15. People call me rude, I wish we were all nude

That'll do for starters, I think...

-----


17/05 ETA: the ones you couldn't place are:

02. Lloyd Cole & The Commotions, Forest Fire
07. The Rolling Stones, Dear Doctor
11. Talking Heads, Memories Can't Wait

I just adore It's no good....

You and me both, then -- it's the theme tune to the worst breakup I ever went through, so perhaps I should hate it really...but I don't; I just love it. Esp. the lines:

Don't say you're happy
Out there without me
I know you can't be
'cause it's no good


I really believed that at the time...

Oh I am so glad that hasn't made you hate it...but then it is DM, hard to hate:)

Their songs are very good at striking a chord!
